|The following is a set of photographs of scenes near the Glowworm tunnel near Newnes.|
|A train passes under the cliffs heading towards Newnes.||Today, the tracks have gone and the formation is overgrown,
but the walk uphill under the cliffs is still impressive.
|Shay locomotive #4 stops to take water from a dam just before the tunnel.
Wise passengers would leave the train here and walk up the gorge
to rejoin the train on the other side of the tunnel.
|While remains of this small dam can still be seen today,
the formation itself has been spectacularly reclaimed by nature.
|An early special tour train is about to enter the Glowworm tunnel
as it heads back to Newnes Junction then on to Sydney in 1911.
|A modern view of the Newnes end of the Glowworm Tunnel.
The footbridge is built through the remains of the railway bridge at this point.
|The crew pose for the camera on the front of locomotive #2,
as it comes out of the Glowworm tunnel, heading towards Newnes.
|This is the view looking out of the mouth of the Glow-worm tunnel,
looking into Tunnel Creek gorge, as you head towards Newnes.
|A section of dry-stone walling to stabilise a cutting
on the descent to the floor of the Wolgan Valley.
This is passed on the walk from Newnes to the Glow-worm tunnel.
|Recent repairs to washouts make the section from the Coach Road back to Newnes a more enjoyable experience for modern-day walkers and cyclists.|
